Tunisia had England all knotted up at 1-1 heading into injury time. After an additional four minutes had been added to the clock, Harry Kane came up large, knocking in his second goal of the game.
It had to be Harry Kane… 2 goals today, including the [likely] game winner. https://t.co/lEXpZ5EJry

This goal proved to be the game-winner in a tightly contested battle that saw England struggle mightily against a lesser foe.

Kane’s heroics kept England very much alive in the World Cup, and Twitter had some great reactions to his timely performance.
Kane barely had any service all game, unreal effeciency

Kane rescued England. Tunisia deserved a point. Shouldn't played to defensive, could have given England some problems if they come out a oil bit more.

Kane is absolutely carrying this team now, isn't he?

Spent so many hours of my life watching England play football. And when I think back to the memories accumulated, very few of them are actually Happy ones. Thank you Harry Kane for flipping an incredibly numbing, tedious script of failure. You are an English Hero
